Some years ago I developed a switchable cutoff frequency set of low pass 
filters to go in the speaker line. The lowest cutoff was in the 400 - 
500 Hz range. CW was erie with that lowest one in the circuit, really 
single signal and NO receiver stage noise. Circuit is at: 
http://www.geraldj.networkiowa.com/papers/speakerfilter.pdf these days. 
Places that deal in sound systems still handle the line to voice coil 
transformers that make using a single set of coils at many different 
frequencies possible.
